AMC announced the “We’re With You” campaign today. The campaign will make some some content from AMC networks available for free for a limited time, including the first half of The Walking Dead Season 10.
The campaign includes free content from AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and WinderstruckTV.com. As part of the campaign, AMC and BBC America have moved up the date of the Killing Eve Season 3 premiere to April 21.
“We want to join with our talent and respond to this moment in the best way that entertainment companies can – which is, to entertain people. Our We’re With You campaign is intended to give information, to offer companionship in the kind of responsive way that linear tv is uniquely able to, and we want to offer audiences the chance to have a laugh, maybe especially important at times of crisis,” said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “We also wanted to make our great content available to more viewers at a time when we are all looking for fantastic things to watch.”
